These ten unique IBEEVs (Ice Breaking Emergenecy Evacuation Vessel) were built to serve as emergency evacuation vessels for personnel on Kashagan Field located at Caspian Sea.
The vessels are fitted with diesel-electric propulsion system allowing operation in 60 cm thick one year ice and free running speed of 10 knots. Combustion air for diesel engines can be drawn both from ambient atmosphere and form 16 high pressure (350 bar) storage cylinders while operating in explosive gas environment. Air reserve is provided for 50 minutes sailing with full speed with completely enclosed vessel. In this case evacuees use oxygen candles and CO2 scrubbers. Additionally vessels are able to sail through pools of fire thanks to the steel construction fully A-60 insulated.
Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting provided class documentation based on Owners concept design. Complete workshop documentation was prepared in this office and full construction and outfitting supervision was provided for all ten vessels.

During International Maritime Exhibition Baltexpo 2007 IBEEV received the Golden Anchor Award founded by Polish Chamber of Commerce.
